life, week 15

The last day of Easter vacation. Coffee and old D2 magazines in bed. Slow and easy, just what I need before the everyday life whirlwind starts again.

First ever family bike ride! A test ride from home to my work, nearly 10 km one way. Ready for action tomorrow. I think. (I wasn't.)

Visiting mamma's work. First drawing on the blackboard, then running in the sports hall. Oh the joys of a 3 year old.

Not completely made from scratch, but there is fish and lots of vegetables. Keeping it real on a busy week day.

evening work - we meet again

Stord bound - last time for studies

student life // the last supper

While I was at Stord for studies, Sara helped pappa prepare the garden for lawn seeding. She loves being her pappa's "byggevenn" (construction friend).

A grilled ham and cheese sandwich is always a winner in my book.

Off to celebrate her friend's fourth birthday

Finally managed to prioritize time for an evening walk around the neighbourhood lake. Hoping it will be a habit.

life, week 14

plus lots of chocolate

paper writing fuel

I had to put the pizza assistant off her duty because she ate all the cheese.

Almost 6:30 pm light in the basement living room.

A very much needed thorough trim of the overgrown hedge.


paper writing fuel, part II

While I'm inside writing my paper, he is outside in the snow dealing with an overgrown hedge. My hero!

Easter at the mountain cabin, 2015 version

After a few days at home working on my paper whilst Sølve worked in the garden, we finally headed to the mountain cabin for our traditional mountain cabin Easter vacation. We had not been there since Easter last year, so it was really, really nice to be back. And with such enormous amounts of snow! We have actually never seen it like this. It was quite a job to dig out the cabin door... Sara loved being back also - this time not only in the pulk but on her own skis too. We are so proud of her!

Answers to questions in the comment section:

Ine asked if I develop film myself.
- No. Would be nice to try once though. In Bergen I got my film developed by Antonio Stasi; I need to find a new developer now that I live in Stavanger. Thinking of testing Aker Foto.

Selina commented on this post: Å! i have been wondering where berthas oldebarn had gone to!
- Unfortunately Berthas is out of business since spring last year.

Paris // the yellow film, part II

A year ago Sølve and I were in Paris with a couple of our dearest friends. Needless to say, it was as perfect as Paris in spring can be. The only thing I was not at all happy about, was the slide film that  got ruined during development. I got the impression it was so ruined that it was discarded of, but then suddenly it reappeared! As you can see from the yellow color tone, it has indeed been ruined in the development process, but all the motifs and memories are still there. So, here you are; Paris in yellow, part II of III (here is part I).
